. they did try to get the repeal of massachusetts health reform on to the ballot for a statewide vote. and it works in massachusetts like it does in every state. you need to get your ballot language approved by the state, then you need to get a certain number of signatures, but if you clear that number of signatures and it turns out enough of those signatures are real people, then your repeal thing goes on the ballot and people get to vote on whether or not to repeal that law. the repeal romney care folks never got to the end of that process, because they got distracted. see, the whole effort to repeal health reform in massachusetts seems to have actually been kind of a pet project, maybe a side interest, for one single anti-abortion group in that state. and even though the group said they really wanted to repeal romney care and they got the repeal romney care url and they got the website up and everything, they ended up losing interest. i think, because massachusetts decided that they were going to consider a doctor-assisted suicide measure, and that excited the anti-abortion people

is under way this morning this hour for a massachusetts teen accused of killing a teacher, a grand jury indicted 14-year-old philip c s chisholm yesterday. ical lecnn has been covering th story from the beginning and pamela brown is covering the case. >> you're right christine and john. i was in danvers right after this teacher was murdered and it really stunned the community and now we're learning more horrific details in the story. we have obtained the murder indictment, we obtained that yesterday for 14-year-old philip chisholm. he'll be tried as an adult in superior court for that charge and we're also learning he faces two additional charges for aggravated rape and armed robbery. as of now he's charged as a youthful offender for those. the armed robbery indictment alleges that chisholm armed with a box cutter robbed her of her credit cards, cash and underwear. he sexually assaulted her with an object, this is new information we're learning and this story from the beginning has been so devastating, so horrific, and it's just -- >> it's a teacher that everyone really loved and a com
different ways from different parts of the british isles so you had puritan massachusetts, anglican virginia, maryland founded by catholic family, quaker pennsylvania, dutch reform new york. the framers of the constitution understood this when they decreed there would be no religious test for federal office and the authors of the bill of rights understood when they said congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion which meant there would be no national religion but it also meant among other things that states could maintain their established churches, the commonwealth of massachusetts maintained an established church until 1843. americans have learned from early times not only to polk but even prosper as a nation with cultural diversity but that diversity has also led to severe strains and in one case to a seemingly irrepressible conflict. the first was the mass movement of the scotch irish from northern ireland and lowland scotland in a dozen years before the american revolution. they started coming over in some numbers in 1713 but there was a real rush, a real surge af
, that in the first couple of months in massachusetts, and that's really the only precedent we had, there were only a couple of thousand people who signed up. we also know about the very troubled rollout of the prescription drug site. we do know that fixes could be made. one thing we also know is that if you put a bill on the floor, and that's what i challenge speaker boehner to do, put a bill on the floor to fix it and see if that doesn't devolve into another appeal. remember where they began. first they undermined it. then they tried to repeal it. now they're trying to sabotage it. one of the problems we're having now is that they're having to take money from other parts of hhs because the appropriators have not in fact funded what needed to be done with this site. one of the changes i think that's going to have to happen is that the public is not going to action i believe, be forced to pay a fine if the website isn't up and if the whole thing isn't running more smoothly. i don't think anybody wants to put this over on the public. but nobody for one second believes that my committee, which is now
in massachusetts. it uses ideas out of the heritage foundation. the individual mandate was originated in the heritage foundation in 1989. the republicans introduced a similar legislation in 1992. you guys are complaining that this is a radical thing. it is filled with republican ideas and the other problem is, you guys have complained for four years and jumping up and down and complaining about how awful obamacare is. there is no republican alternative as far as i know. there is none that has been passed in the house. you don't have a comprehensive health care plan. the health care costs that we have in the united states have been rising and rising for the past 20 years. they are projected to continue to rise if there is no change. what is the republican alternative to the awful, harvell, terrible, ghastly obamacarec which is really romneyare? guest: i think it's true that in the 1990s, there were conservatives who were trying to be proactive and look for ways to solve the healthcare problem. it is wrong to say that all republicans embrace this idea and rally around it but there are

yesterday from mitt romney. he spent some time talking about the rollout in massachusetts. of course, obama care has been compared to that health care plan since its inception. how accurate of a picture was governor romney painting in terms of the rollout there in massachusetts? >> well, among the things i am not paying close attention to in retirement is governor romney. so i can't tell you because i don't know what he said. i will say this and this is one of the problems. in fairness to the administration -- and they clearly have much to apologize for -- the problems with the website, it was never anticipated that the federal website was going to have to do most of the country. people did not see the election of republicans in 2010 in many states who would then refuse to participate. and at the same time with the republican house refuse to provide the funding. so part of the problem with the website is that it was given a job that nobody anticipated it would have because of the unfortunate obstructionist attitude of some of the new republican governors. >> congressman barney frank, always
of a bunch of women in massachusetts and said, "no longer will these evil insurance companies be able to charge you women more." but when did you last go to the doctor? >> when did i go to the doctor? >> elizabeth is going to answer quite quickly. women go to the doctor much more often than men. maybe they're smarter or maybe they're hypochondriacs. they live longer, i don't know. you ought to be able to charge the people who use the services more, more. >> the affordable care act was a historic achievement for women's health on several fronts. women can't be denied for a gender-based preexisting condition. it covers preventative services up such as contraception and mammograms. but what gets stossel's mustache in a twist is the law brings an end to the discriminatory practice of gender rating, which allowed insurance to charge women premiums costing up to 150% more than their male counterparts. rates are calculated by risk. a healthy woman who regularly sees her doctor for preventive screenings is actually minimizing her risk. or, according to john stosel, she's a hypochondriac. take
in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or improvements in the new law. once implementation begins, republican governors across the country refuse to build their own state exchanges putting unexpected pressure on the federal exchanges. then congressional republicans refuse to give hhs the money it needs to build the federal exchange. then there's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh urging people to avoid tax refunds as a ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. a two-week government shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. if the health care isn't dismantled. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington through baltimore and into town because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give th

small business, another small business wants a $20 co-pay. so we know that from the massachusetts connector experience in small group market and we know that based on the commercial side of the market. and i have a private board that made many of these decisions with a lot of input from policy stakeholder workgroups. so we decided early on that we wanted, that we didn't want to limit products. we wanted carriers to be as innovative as they wanted to be. the one early decision that we made, which was unanimously recommended by all stakeholders including consumer groups, providers and carriers was that we would not allow benefits substitutions to the central health benefits package. and so that products could have additional benefits like acupuncture as an example, if not one of the core benefits. so the variation in product is really additional benefits on top of the essential health benefits benchmarked and the variation in your out of pocket liability. so the co-pay, coinsurance, et cetera. >> thank you. spent thank you. i also work in coalition with many asian-american organizat
is that the governor of massachusetts estimated that only 123 consumers signed up in the first month but eventually tens of thousands did and now today the state has nearly universal coverage. they went from one in four people having insurance to uninsured being one in four to 2340u being one in ten. we know the results so to me it's a reminder of what our goal was which is to address double digit increases in insurance rates were preventing people from getting insurance coverage. so to me the issues of the website and software since it's part of a background i've had before, to me it's about writing code and getting things tested and it's very frustrating for andnd struggling for months months and months to get a scientific way to clean up that resource. that case it's about just getting the code right and making it work and making it function. in that case, governor romney for and got a three month did he clay. i'm not asking you to comment on that. i know the chairman asked to you comment on that. but i think there is no shame in pushing out a date based on technology. that's my opinion. and i w

is working in massachusetts. it uses ideas of the heritage foundation. the individual mandate was founded by the heritage foundation in 1989. republicans introduced similar legislation in 1992. senate republicans for health care. so you guys are complaining this is a radical, radical thing when it's filled with republican ideas. then the other problem is you guys have complained for four years. you jumped up and down and complaining about how awful obama care is. there is, as far as i know, is no republican alternative. none that's been passed in the house. you don't have a comprehensive health care plan. the health care costs have been rising and rising and rising for the last 20 years. they're projected to continue to rise if there is no change. so what is the republican alternative to the awful, awful, horrible, terrible ghastly obama care? what's really romney care? >> first it's true that i guess in the 1990s, there were conservatives who were trying to be proactive and look for ways to solve the health care problems. some of them, not all -- it's wrong to say all republicans embrace

they used legislative ledger domain on december 24 before scott brown from massachusetts could take office to pass an immigration bill that -- pass a health care bill that the american people overwhelmingly opposed. maybe the american people, part of the frustration with the congress is they passed a bill without a single republican vote in the house or the senate, rammed it through, that the american people opposed. maybe that's why the american people are not happy with us around here. but let me explain, colleagues, what it is that's causing the greatest frustration in the senate. it's a trend that began some years ago, not long after i came to the senate 17 years ago, and it's just accelerated. and it's reached a pace on the majority leader reid we've never ever seen before, and it undermines the very integrity and tradition of the senate, and it's got to stop. and we've got to recover the tradition of this body. we owe it to those who will be filling these seats years to come. and this is the problem. a maneuver was discovered called filling the tree, a parliamentary maneuver that the

in massachusetts and are not fun at all. but i've written two books now about the words called "alphabetter juice" and "the joy of text." i was reading a textbook of linguistics and the connection between words and meaning as arbitrary. which doesn't make any sense to me. that would mean that splurge and spit could mean the same thing. and i think that words have a lot to do -- not all, but the best words have to do with this. giving an example, how they move through your body. it has rss [bleep], so that is because there was a python body behind him. and so, okay. so it came from from the latin word to urinate. that is the literary latin word in the street latin use a different form, which is how we got our work. the etymologist went on to say that obviously this captures the sound and i said, this is my kind of work. first welcome all the best words come from the street and then they also sound like this. but then it hit me that this doesn't sound like that. it actually starts out and then it becomes a very bodily world. but that is technically more fun to read about than to talk about. so goin
both chambers of the commerce in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or improvements in the new law. republican governors across the country refuse to build their own state exchanges putting unexpected pressure on the federal exchanges. then congressional republicans refuse to give hhs the money it needs to build the federal exchange. then there's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven'
, massachusetts right now. sasha eisenberg, author of "the secret science of winning campaigns" which thankfully is out in paper back. it's great to see you, my friend. i think the last time we talked was in the wake of the 2012 election. i woernd given the work you did and reporting you did in that election cycle whether you think any lessons have been learned on the right side of the aisle in terms of voter outrage? can we see any lessons in virginia? >> i've been really surprised. there's been a lot of lip service on the right starting with rnc postmortem report that came out this year, talking about the need to make better investments and the ground game, the use of data and analytics. i don't in talking to republicans at the national or local level see a lot of people who have developed the expertise to do that. this is difficult, sophisticated stuff. your normal sort of political operative staffer types don't have the skill set to do it. in the wake of the democrat's loss in 2004, they invest in a lot of new institutions to house data, do analysis, do testing at great costs that existed on
to japan, to his great nephew and massachusetts's newest congressman, joe kennedy, to the school of public service that bears the family name and teaches its young leaders how they too might pass the torch to a new generation. this is a legacy of a man who could have retreated to a life of luxury and ease but who chose to live a life in the arena, sailing sometimes against the wind, sometimes with it. that's why 50 years later, john f. kennedy stands for posterity as did he in life, young and bold and daring and he stays with us in our imagination, not because he left us too soon but because he embodied the character of the people that he led. resilient, resolute, fearless and fun-loving, defiant in the face of impossible odds, and most of all, determined to make the world anew. not settling for what is but rather for what might be. and in his idealism, his sober square jawed idealism, we are reminded that the power to change this country is ours. this afternoon michelle and i were joined by president clinton and secretary clinton to pay tribute to that proud legacy. and we had a chance to
for the final okay from the states they're in but some states, including new york and massachusetts, they are refusing extensions. 20 states have yet to make any decision about it at all, leaving manyeople wondering where that leaves them in all this. okay, we know. calling it the nuclear option may sound more than a little heavy-handed but while the rule change we just witnessed in the senate is no cold war, a chill is now whipping through the halls of congress, at least that's what senator john mccain just told dana bash. >> there's a chill. >> reporter: they're not reaching out to the democrats that you worked with -- >> i reached out to them for the last two weeks, i've reached out to them. i spent an hour in harry reid's office. i've reached until my arm aches. >> let's bring in our panel. margaret carlson, michael warren and michael len. let's get a quick reaction about today's news. bad decision by harry reid, understandable? what do you think? >> harry reid's thinking was that whatever republicans are going to do now cannot be worse than what they have been doing. e republic
is that as in massachusetts, under romney care, there were minimum standards for health care plans that were offered. the reason it's so is if you want young and healthy people and not picking what kind of coverage they think they need or ultimately the risk model will collapse. it is also true people who get a cancellation notice can get another plan that could be a better plan for them. this all is very complicated and does not detract from the point when he said you can keep your plan no matter what, that wasn't right. >> the bottom line is the rollout was faulty. that's painful. now the question is, whether this next promise can be kept. >> this is the interesting thing. the rollout was faulty. the reason is the tech problems. i have been through a lot of rollouts, not all health care. we are innovative and wonderful in creating health care. it happens again and again and again. the problem is, it happened in the biggest tech rollout in the history of the world. >> do you think it was smart to give another deadline? >> if they are going to make it, it's great. >> it's great. >> you know, my rule
is working in massachusetts. it uses ideas out of the heritage foundation. the individual mandate was originated in the heritage foundation in 1989. ae republicans introduced similar legislation in 1992. you guys are complaining that this is a radical thing. it is filled with republican ideas and the other problem is, you guys have complained for four years and jumping up and down and complaining about how awful obamacare is. there is no republican alternative as far as i know. there is none that has been passed in the house. you don't have a comprehensive health care plan. the health care costs that we have in the united states have been rising and rising for the past 20 years. they are projected to continue to rise if there is no change. what is the republican alternative to the awful, harvell, terrible, ghastly obamacare which is really romneycare? guest: i think it's true that in the 1990s, there were conservatives who were trying to be proactive and look for ways to solve the healthcare problem. it is wrong to say that all republicans embrace this idea and rally around it bu
of legislation. >> its modeled after romney's bill in massachusetts. that's the truth. it really is a moderate republican bill which is market based. i think in the long run it can work. there are other countries that do health insurance in the private-sector, switzerland, for example. the netherlands. massachusetts. but the bill is complicated and it's unnecessarily complicated but in its fundamental conception it can work. it will work. >> very good. coming up on "morning joe" we'll be talking about a lot more. we have san antonio mayor, fannie mae and freddie mac, david gregory, geoffrey rush. as great as that is compares with the press conference yesterday in toronto where the mayor gave his own version of i am not a crook. we're going play you what we can and we're going to bleep out the rest. first here's bill karins with the fix. >> unfortunately some people won't like their weekend forecast. things are going to get dicey in the middle of the country. chances of tornadoes. first thing this morning we have some rain to talk about coming through arkansas up through memphis. not a lot of t
the massachusetts program on which this was built which enrolled 123 people in its first month, about which all the same stuff, you know the employers will all drop, the ploy i don't see won't take it. the people will just pay the fine, it won't get to you. all of those things were said. every one of them by many of the same economists and massachusetts is basically working pretty well. we had an expansion to a prescription drug entitlement under president bush t. computers the donut. then it was a different argument. then it was republicans don't like new programs, so they don't make it work. that's why it's failing. it's a bit different as an argument. it was the same thing, growing pains. then it worked. i promise if you go back to when it was enstalled, you will find that there weren't any computers, but, you know, are they going to get the pastal system working? are they going to get the files created and keep track of people's payrolls? that doesn't mean this isn't jer e serious. but my bet is that this is not going to be a history books, 25 years from now t. fact that america joined the
-- from massachusetts is weighing in on the battle from obamacare and he zeroed in on president obama's campaign promise. listen. >> he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermind the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try and rebuild a foundation. >> that troubled health care .gov website is back up and running after an over night shutdown for repairs that had a rocky rollout. meantime congress still wants answers about the flawed website and about how many people have been able to successfully enroll in obamacare. a top presidential advisor says the numbers won't be that great for the first month. >> our goal is to get as many people done as possible. i can promise you the first enrollment numbers which was released later this month are not going to be what we want them to be. we take responsibility for that and take r
